Blocking off rear AC lines
I just bought a 2002 envoy XL with the rear AC. I knew the AC didn't work when I bought it. Brought it home and the system has a leak. It's in the rear lines which I now know is a problem with these vehicles.
Anyways, I'm thinking of blocking these off, as I've seen the block off kits.
My question is, how well does the AC work with the back blocked off? Does the vehicle still cool down pretty well? Also I've seen block off kits for around $70. Does anyone know of any cheaper or what are the best ones to buy?
I doubt I ever use the third row seating very much, so I don't think it would be a huge issue.
Also I'm thinking my compressor might be toast as well. I jumped the low side switch with a paperclip, just to see if it would kick on, and it did nothing.
Is that a sign the compressor is bad as well?
Thanks in advance.
